The Future of Helium as a Natural Resource

Front Cover
William J. Nuttall, Richard Clarke, Bartek Glowacki
Routledge, Jun 25, 2012 - Business & Economics - 320 pages

The book reveals the changing dynamics of the helium industry on both the supply-side and the demand-side. The helium industry has a long-term future and this important gas will have a role to play for many decades to come. Major new users of helium are expected to enter the market, especially in nuclear energy (both fission and fusion). Prices and volumes supplied and expected to rise and this will prompt greater efforts towards the development of new helium sources and helium conservation and recycling.
